Taipei began its 2015 Spring Safety Operation on the evening of February 8. The initiative will last 20 days to ensure security during the Chinese New Year holiday and to build the public’s trust in the police department’s capabilities.
Mayor Ko Wen-je stated that security should be provided 24 hours a day and not just limited to this holiday period.
The operation could be related to the drug busts over the weekend.
